The 2016 Homearama was a 16-day home show event attracting nearly 22,000 visitors to nine luxury designer furnished new homes on one street in the Hallsley community located in Chesterfield County. Presented by the Home Building Association of Richmond, the model homes are priced between $950,000 to over $1 Million and are built and decorated to highlight the latest in interior decorating ideas, trends, and innovations in new homes. Guests pay a $10 admission to enjoy touring the exceptional new homes, numerous exhibits and a variety of special entertainment and events on select days—all included in the ticket price! Proceeds from this showcase home event will benefit the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation in Richmond.
